  • Bake cookies in star shapes as directed in recipe. Cool.
  • Divide frosting into thirds and color one red and the other blue. Place in pastry bags fit with small star tips.
  • Decroate cookies as desired. Let sit for 1 hour to semi-harden frosting. Frosting won't harden completely so be careful.
  • Store loosely covered for up to 4 days.
